Hi ladies! I can’t believe tomorrow is the big day for us. My lining this morning was 10.2, they said it looked good for the transfer. Just waiting to get my bloodwork results to confirm it’s a go, and then we should be set. It’s so great to have this board just in time, I love having a support group who all know what it’s really like. It’s going to be a tough time leading up to the beta but I’m trying to stay optimistic. For whatever reason I really do feel more positive than I did in September, when we had a BFN (a number of things just didn’t feel quite “right” that time around) so I’m hoping that is a good sign and hoping the positivity will have a beneficial effect.
Ciney, sorry to hear your lining was too thick to start–I’ve never heard of it being that thick in the beginning. Did they have any potential explanations for something like that happening? Hopefully it will bleed soon so you can get going. Waiting is so hard but it is best to wait until everything really is lining up (pun not intended) perfectly.
kath, I’m thinking along similar lines for you–best to get your vaca over with, so everything in your life is lining up just right. I really feel like after I was having some anxious and negative energy in September, that somehow was a bad sign or may have played a role in it not working out. Better to push things back another week or month or whatever it may be until everything is feeling right and working well with your schedule. Your doctor will know what timing would work, so trust in your doctor and keep him/her aware of what’s good for you, and you’ll be all good.
To the others, good luck as you get things moving toward your upcoming transfers!! I’m excited to watch everyone’s journey and cheer you all on. It can be hard to stay positive sometimes in the process (OK, a LOT of the time in this process) but I really do think the success can depend in part on our positive energy, so I’m so glad we will have each other to help with that piece of the fertility puzzle!
One question to you all, anyone else doing a single-embryo transfer? I had done a single for my first transfer back in 2012 and it worked, which I thank God for so much every single day. I had a single in September as well, which didn’t work, but we’ll be going for a single again tomorrow. Our embryos have had genetic screening to make sure they are chromosomally normal, and my clinic (RMA of NJ) had done a study a few years ago showing a transfer of a single chromosomally normal embryo had the same success rate as two unscreened embryos–so between that and my doctor recommending a single for me due to my small size (I’m 4’11" and weight in low 90s, so she said multiples would mean a very high-risk pregnancy) we chose to go with a single. It’s still somewhat rare for people to do single transfers though, so I was curious if anyone else was in our boat.
